Why Use Our Service?
Many couples and event organisers can become overly stressed and frustrated when planning events adding. Brendan or Ghizlaine can help reduce unnecessary pressure, with their knowledge and experience.

There is not one major company that provides all the services for a wedding but several that generally have to be contacted, scheduled, and paid for separately because each couple has specific demands that not one company can meet. This makes the planning and organisation of a modern wedding very complicated.

With the average age for marriage in New Zealand being between 20 and 34 years old, couples will be working directly with Brendan or Ghizlaine who have experience in the industry’s modern trends. We have good contacts and have been able to establish working relationships with many wedding industry vendors and suppliers (locally, nationally and internationally) over the past years.
